Nindies Spring 2018 Showcase

 

Nintendo has announced their Nindies Spring Showcase for Spring 2018. The event will shine a spotlight on a number of upcoming indie games that are making their way to the Nintendo Switch hybrid console in the coming months. The 2018 Nindies Spring Showcase will be taking place on Tuesday, March 20th. As for what to expect, Nintendo is very tight-lipped on the matter, as they have given only the date and time for the event. They’ve sent out a press release and tweeted about the upcoming Nindies Showcase, but the press release has no more information than the tweet.

 

As you can see, the 2018 Nindies Spring Showcase will get started at 9am pacific time (12pm eastern time) on the 20th. You’ll have to tune in to live.nintendo.com at that time to find out what new stuff you’ll be able to throw money at in the Nintendo Switch eShop in the coming months. So if you like indie games, especially on the go, then mark your calendar so you don’t forget to tune in on March 20th.

 

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
